The campus has arranged with Community of Science for a special 90-day free trial of COS Pivot, which provides a searchable funding opportunities database, a faculty profiles database, and a virtual space for sharing funding opportunities with colleagues.

 

UCI faculty, staff, and students can access COS Pivot from on-campus computers simply by going to the COS Pivot homepage (http://pivot.cos.com/) and searching.  However, a username and password are necessary when IP access is not active, a user is off-campus, or a user needs to save a funding record or funding search.

 

To access Pivot with the user’s own unique Username and Password, go to http://pivot.cos.com/ and click the "Log In" option in the upper right corner of the screen. Clicking on "Login help" will present a screen where you can choose to create an account. You will gain access to COS Pivot by indicating that you are a member of UCI, and will need to have a valid UCI email address. You will receive an email with a validation link to confirm your registration to COS Pivot. Once you click on the validation link, access will be granted.
